Senior Synthesis

Senior Synthesis Talks are given by our Math Majors the final quarter of their senior year--usually in the spring. They culminate their math studies by presenting on topics that are of special interest to them or about which they have done in-depth research. Currently, these talks will take place via Zoom. Check this page for dates and times, as well as specifics about who will be speaking and what their subjects will be. For connection details and other questions, you may contact Professor David Neel at
